Robbie Ray struggled in Sunday's 10-inning loss to the Pirates, surrendering four runs on six hits over four innings while taking a no-decision.

Ray struck out two and walked three in what was a less-than-inspiring performance. Three of the four runs on his line scored in the third inning when he surrendered a solo home run to Andrew McCutchen and a two-run dinger to Josh Bell. He has turned in a wobbly season, pitching to a 4.57 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 59/26 K/BB ratio in eight starts (45 1/3 inning). The strikeouts are great, but until he can find some level of consistency, he will remain a maddening fantasy own. A road start against the Padres shows next on his schedule.
May 14 - 8:21 PM

Robbie Ray allowed five earned runs, five hits and five walks with eight strikeouts over five innings in a loss against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Ray tossed just 56 of his 98 pitches for strikes in a forgettable outing, although the southpaw did salvage the stat line with another high strikeout total. He has recorded at least six punchouts in each of his seven outings, totaling 57 strikeouts in just 41 1/3 innings.
May 10 - 3:08 AM

Robbie Ray took a loss despite striking out 10 batters and allowing just two runs in six innings to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He surrendered four hits and one walk in the contest. Unfortunately his teammates couldn't generate any offense against Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez. Ray falls to 2-2 with a 3.47 ERA and an amazing 49 strikeouts in 36 1/3 innings. His next start will come Tuesday at home in an interleague matchup against the Tigers.
May 3 - 10:36 PM

Robbie Ray gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

It was a pretty typical outing for Ray; he struck out nine, but he also walked three. In five starts, he has a 39/17 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings. He'll have to cut down some on the walks to be of much use in WHIP and ERA>
Apr 29 - 2:45 AM

Robbie Ray wasn't very good Saturday, allowing five runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings, but he still earned the win against the Dodgers.

Such is the nature of the win statistic, which awarded Ray for getting through five innings and being only slightly less bad than Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda on this day. Ray gave up a leadoff homer to Kike Hernandez among his nine hits allowed, and he also walked two while whiffing six. The win, deserving or otherwise, improved Ray to 2-0 on the year with a 3.42 ERA. He'll have a good shot at remaining undefeated when the D'backs face the Padres on Thursday.
Apr 23 - 1:34 AM

Robbie Ray held the Dodgers to two runs -- one earned -- and struck out 10 in six innings Monday.

Ray walked four and gave up a homer, but after pitching out of trouble the first two innings, he was pretty clean over the final four. After three starts, Ray has a 1.96 ERA, 24 strikeouts and 12 walks in 18 1/3 innings. He'll keep racking up the K's, but the walks are going to catch up to him somewhat.
Apr 18 - 2:02 AM

Robbie Ray struck out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the Giants on Tuesday.

Ray walked five and gave up four hits, but all of those hits were singles. It helped that he was facing a Giants lineup with Aaron Hill batting cleanup; Buster Posey, Denard Span and Brandon Crawford were all absent. Ray has the stuff to retire the better hitters, but we'll still have to wait and see if he can do it consistently this year.
Apr 12 - 1:47 AM

Robbie Ray allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Thursday.

Ray would have wound up with a win if he could have gotten one more out in the sixth, but he was pulled after a walk and an RBI double with two outs. The Diamondbacks were down 3-2 at that point, but they came back with four in the bottom of the sixth and won 9-3.
Apr 7 - 1:52 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered three runs in four innings against the Indians in Friday's Cactus League loss.

He allowed only three hits but two of them sailed over the fence. He struck out five batters and walked two. Ray is often mentioned as a sleeper candidate because of his massive strikeout rate last season but his spring training results have been underwhelming. He will leave camp with a 5.11 ERA after seven starts. He tallied 27 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings. He made 32 starts for the Diamondbacks in 2016, finishing with an 8-15 record, a 4.90 ERA and an amazing 218 strikeouts in just 174 1/3 innings.
Apr 1 - 1:06 AM

Robbie Ray was ejected from his Cactus League start on Sunday for arguing balls and strikes.

The issue wasn't with the calls that he was getting on the mound; Ray took exception to a called third strike that he took while at the dish, prompting the argument. Before getting tossed, the southpaw allowed six runs on six hits over his four innings of work. Perhaps the frustration from his poor outing boiled over.
Mar 26 - 6:13 PM

Robbie Ray held the Royals to two earned runs over five innings Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 4-2 Cactus League victory.

Ray is now 3-0 on the spring, for whatever that's worth. He struck out six and issued only one walk, though former teammate Peter O'Brien popped him for a solo homer in the second and Jorge Soler added a solo shot of his own in the fifth. Ray carries a very high-risk, high-reward fantasy profile into the 2017 season after striking out 218 batters over just 174 2/3 innings in 2016. That big strikeout total came with a disappointing 8-15 record and a 4.90 ERA.
Mar 21 - 6:50 PM

Robbie Ray allowed three runs -- two earned -- while punching out seven batters in four innings of work in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

He gave up four hits and no walks. Despite the rough outing, Ray has pitched well so far in camp. He has a 2.31 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 11 2/3 innings. Still just 25 years old, Ray is coming off a campaign in which he registered an 8-15 record with a 4.90 ERA and an eye-popping 218 strikeouts in 174 1/3 innings in 2016.
Mar 16 - 7:58 PM

Robbie Ray allowed one run on three hits over 3 1/3 innings during Saturday's Cactus League win over the Giants.

Ray struck out three and walked one on the afternoon. One of the more maddening fantasy options on the landscape, the 25-year-old southpaw has plenty of strikeout potential -- he fanned 218 batters in 174 1/3 innings last season -- but has yet to put it all together. Over the course of 32 starts in 2016, Ray posted a 4.90 ERA and 1.46 WHIP to pair with those 218 whiffs. NL-only leaguers are not advised to shy away from Ray completely, but should be aware that drafting him could result in an adventure of a season.
Mar 11 - 7:31 PM

Robbie Ray spun three scoreless innings against the Royals on Monday.

Ray allowed three hits and walked none while striking out one. The southpaw was shaky in his spring debut last week, so this was a nice step forward for him. Ray compiled a mediocre 4.90 ERA over 32 starts last season, but he was tied for fourth in the majors in strikeout percentage. He figures to have some momentum as a potential breakout pick this spring.
